Description

Since its inception in the early 1970's the POW-MIA flag has had a career of its own. Its design has been copied on everything from bumper stickers to belt buckles and these items have been used as fundraisers for many veterans' causes. OnMarch 9, 1989 an official League POW-MIA flag was installed in the US Capital Rotunda where it stands as a powerful symbol of national commitment to America's POW/MIA's. It is the only flag ever to be honored in this way. On August 10, 1990, Congress passed US Public Law 101-355 which officially recognized the League's POW-MIA flag on November 18, 1997 President Clinton signed into law the 1998 Defense Authorization Act. A section of that act requires that the POW-MIA flag be flown from Military Installations, National Cemeteries, V.A. Medical Centers and many other Federal Buildings. It remains one of the most popular organizational flags flown in the United States, selling in the tens of thousands every year. Annin Flagmakers remains an officially sanctioned supplier of the POW-MIA flag to the Federal Government and keeps the POW-MIA flag stocked in a wide variety of sizes and styles."owed head, set against a guard tower and a single strand of barbed wire serves as a national symbol and a challenge to a country not to forget. The story of its origin at Annin Flagmakers over 30 years ago is one that we are proud to tell. In 1970 Mrs. Mary Hoff,an MIA wife and member of the National League of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia recognized the need for a symbol for our POW/MIAs. She read a newspaper article in the Jacksonville, Florida Times Union about Annin Flagmakers that explained how Annin helped to design and subsequently manufactured the POW-MIA flags for the newer UN member nations.
